    " I enjoyed the way the story was told, through the description of pictures to a blind person. Every memory related is full of visual delights. The tale itself was interesting, an old woman's memories of a family dragged down by mental health issues, but I was left wanting more. I felt that the main character should have come to some realization about her own complicity in the story and that never happened. I also wanted to know more about those listening to the story, but that didn't happen either. All in all, this book is full of beautiful, descriptive language that produces vivid pictures in the readers mind, but was lacking a little in the character development. "

    " Never read a man that writes women so well. "

    " A melancholy tale of an unfulfilled life framed round a series of fractured mother-daughter relationships. Coe's engaging style makes it easy to read and makes the most of the central conceit of revealing the story through descriptions of a series of family photos. Although lacking in some substance it's an engrossing read that flirs by all too quickly. "
